  1. Allo allo!

    The forum software has been upgraded. Maybe you noticed some strange things this week. It was more difficult to do than I thought.

    I have some plans for this forum, I want to make it closer to the website. For example, your username should be the same on both. So from now on it should be the same, when you write here or there. Also, your avatar should be the same. To do this I had to get rid of the old avatars and start using gravatar here.

    If you want an avatar, go here and set it up http://www.gravatar.com/

    The forum is successful and I'm happy about that. If you have any sugggestions let me know in the comments.

    Thank you for helping each other!

  2. If you have any problems logging in, just email me at maangchi@gmail.com. Whenever you login, use the username and password that you used to use on the forum. From now on, you need to log in to post a comment on the website as well.

    The reason for this?

    It was getting confusing who was talking about what, with different usernames on the forum or the website, so I decided to make it all the same: one login, one name, for everywhere on maangchi.com This will help make discussion clearer, also some regular posters can reserve their username and we will always know who is speaking.

    If you upload your avatar to http://www.gravatar.com/ your avatar will also be the same everywhere on the site. Actually, that avatar will show up wherever you comment on most wordpress blogs on the internet, not just my site. So instead of uploading a new avatar to every site, you upload one to gravatar and it's used everywhere.

    My goal is to make comments and the forum more friendly and help you get introduced to each other, no matter where you are in the world.

    I have some more plans for this, so this is the first step. Stay tuned!
